Christmas rumballs

I've made these rumballs as gifts. They look nicer than last year's. The original recipe came from Australian Good Taste magazine.

 Decorated with a dark chocolate coating, white chocolate snow, mint leaves and jaffas. (Tip: Jaffas fade in the fridge)

Simply decorated with dark chocolate coating and white chocolate drizzle.

Here's the recipe:
800g of dark fruit cake (I used Woolworths Homebrand) chopped finely
Rum as much as you like
200g melted chocolate (either dark or milk or a mix)

  1. Mix all the ingredients together and leave it to firm up in the fridge for an hour.
  2. Shape into balls of desired size.
  3. Put it back into the fridge to firm up before dipping them in melted slightly cooled chocolate.
  4. Back to the fridge again before drizzling the cooled melted white chocolate and decorating with the mint leaves and Jaffas. (You can use candied cherries instead of jaffas)

Here's the cat pretending to be one of the gifts.
